Mr. Sims is not quite in accord with his ambitious wife, and the straw that breaks the camel's back arrives next day, when Mrs. Sims is called for jury service. The lady, however, determines to do her duty. Mr. Sims disapproves of his wife's activity for women's rights, and persuades his stenographer to help him in his plan to teach Mrs. Sims a lesson. To carry out his scheme Sims invites his stenographer for a ride in his automobile. The young lady likes to ride fast, and Mr. Sims is fond of showing off, and the result is they are arrested for speeding. Taken to court for trial, Mr. Sims, to his great surprise, finds he is to he tried before a jury of women, and that the forewoman is his wife. Sims demands immediate trial and gets it. The verdict is handed in to the judge, who addresses the stenographer as follows: "Young woman, you are discharged. The jury is convinced that you are not to blame for this violation of the law." Turning to Sims, the judge continued: "And you, sir, are sentenced to the county jail for six days. I am determined to put a stop to the reckless speeding of high-powered automobiles through our streets. Officer, remove the prisoner." Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
